(For a long time, the Israeli right wing has sought to propose this bill with a view to making decisions of the Israeli Central Elections Commission (ICEC) effective. However, the bill removes the High Court’s power to annual decisions of the ICEC. According to the latest elections, the ICEC consists of party representatives.)

Initiator: Oded Forer and others from the Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) Party

The Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies (MADAR) is an independent research centre specialising in Israeli affairs, based in Ramallah, Palestine. MADAR was established in 2000 by a group of Palestinian intellectuals and academics, including the late poet Mahmoud Darwish, Dr. Lily Feidy, Dr. Ali Jarbawi, Dr. Ahmad Harb, Mr. Walid Al-Ahmad and Mr. Akram Haniyyeh. The centre was registered as a not-for-profit organisation with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior, and obtained a research centre’s operational licensing from the Palestinian Ministry of Information.
